Marsh Supermarkets win ruling against former CEO

Federal jurors have ruled in favor of Marsh Supermarkets and ordered former CEO Don Marsh to pay $2.2 million in damages. RTV6 reports the decision came down late Friday night in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis. The supermarket chain had sued Don Marsh alleging he used the company as his personal checkbook. Company officials had accused the 75-year-old of using millions of dollars to finance trips and buy expensive gifts for loved ones and friends. Marsh‘s attorney argued Marsh did not commit fraud and that the company‘s board knew about Marsh‘s spending and Marsh didn‘t violate any policies. Jurors reached their verdict in the two week civil trial after deliberating for six hours.
